Product Number: 71

Aurora is an intelligent PBX solution that uses the Iridium satellite system to operate as a telephone, Internet portal, GPS device, and SMS terminal. The enclosure is fully waterproof and simple to install. There is no need for a docking station, coax cable, or any other accessories.

Primary benefit: Aurora is the world’s first satellite phone terminal to provide satellite voice, data, and GPS tracking via WiFi to smartphones and tablets.

Aurora is powered by a single Ethernet cable for easy, fast, and efficient installation and it is built to be the most convenient communications solution for the most extreme places on Earth.

The Aurora has clear voice quality and minimizes dropped calls because of its strong external antenna. Just download the free XGate Phone app to your iOS or Android mobile device and talk on your smartphone using your Iridium satellite airtime. Up to 4 phone lines can speak to one-another over the local network created by Aurora, giving you a complete local phone system with extension, voicemail, and ringing options

Because Aurora uses VoIP over local WiFi, none of the calls made over the local network consume airtime. Aurora is a NMEA 2000 compliant GPS WiFi repeater – so you can share Aurora’s GPS data with virtually any of the marine electronics on your vessel – in real time. Want to steer your boat with an iPad? With Aurora you can.
